I don't like it either. Not because she might be making parallels between her and Picasso himself but because of the way she shyly namedrops him. You can barely hear Picasso, I had to look up the lyrics to find out he mentioned him lol I mean if you're gonna drop such a statement just SAY IT LOUD GIRL you got this.

I don't like that song overall tbh, maybe it will eventually grow on me

 

it sounds cringe in the first place

But just listen to it over and over again. I can feel a satire tone she "secretly" laying underneath of that line

Now i can't help but thinking she's mocking the way the gp & the critics judging her about "being depressed constantly" & "glamourizing" all kinds of fucked up shits, when she just simply, i dont know - being sad - like a human being?!

Based on QFTC, it makes sense for me.

Also Blue Banisters (the track) didn't really resonate with me much when it was released with Textbook and Wildfire Wildflower but for some reason in the context of the album it's become a favourite? It's just resonating with me so hard I think especially since I lost a few close friendships over the pandemic and lockdowns and really don't feel like I have many close female friendships anymore. BB really makes me yearn for that again :poordat:

Please invite all of us to your wedding

This is so interesting. I wonder one day if we really have a real life lanaboards/lana event or someone's wedding. I wonder how many of you will *actually* show up. 

 

I know I would. I'd show up as @lustforlife :gasp:

I swear I am not being dramatic, but I do really need time to express how I feel about Blue Banisters. It was the first time that I couldn’t fully complete the first listening because everything was too fucking intense and overwhelming. At this point I don’t know what I’d do without her music and now I just want to cry again all over my bed all night long. Sorry for the annoying post. Tomorrow I’m going to listen to the album again while driving, so I’m 100% sure I will end up crying publicly and people will think someone in my family just died but thats okay, I guess, you can’t control feelings. Well, so the bitch hit again. And hard I would say. Fucking Kevin. 

I feel you on that. I was high listening to the album and I felt she was coming on so hot. I guess we got used to the calmness and stripped down sincerity of NFR! and COTCC and we weren’t expecting BTD/Paradise/UV era fire paired with mature lyrics. It’s a lot.

I feel like Honeymoon and Blue Banisters speak to each other in some respect. There is the more visible synergy between Ultraviolence and Blue Banisters, but Honeymoon and Blue Banisters are both – in my opinion – Lana's most deliberate self-examinations.

 

Honeymoon is more abstract and sensory in its reflection, whereas Blue Banisters is more lyrically dense and empirical. These are shaping up to be my top two favourites :wub:

Exactly exactly :oprah::oprah3:

 

Blue Banisters, to me, is a combination of the best parts of Honeymoon, Ultraviolence and Chemtrails.

It’s almost too much, isn’t it? Too honest, too vulnerable, too raw… but still in the best way possibile. I mean, right for all the wrong reasons.

This gets better and better with each listen. Paired with the weather cooling down and the cold creeping in, this album is an amalgamation of the autobiographical, internality of a self at its most vulnerable and the sprawling, crisp landscapes of fall
